The new PONSSE Elephant 18 ton forwarder offers unforeseen size, speed and transport efficiency. The tractive force and torque of this powerhouse has been designed for extreme demands and conditions. Its superior performance can be seen best on steep slopes, deep snow, and soft terrain. Its moveable 6.25 m2 (67.3 sq ft) bunk, effi cient drive transmission and powerful crane ensures loads will be transported to roadside quickly and safely – regardless of the site conditions. The efficient hydraulic system operates the PONSSE Elephant’s fast and fl exible crane.
ULTIMATE ENGINE POWER REDUCES OPERATING COSTS
One of the superior features of the PONSSE Elephant forwarder is its unique engine efficiency. It operates up to 200-250 rpm’s lower than most competitive forwarders in the same size category – and it still achieves needed engine power and greater hydraulic power. This means, among other things, cost savings through reduced fuel consumption, less noise and more comfortable operating conditions.
STABLE, GREAT BALANCE
The PONSSE Elephant is available in either 8 or 6 wheel models, depending on its targeted use: The 8-wheel version is suitable for hard or medium-hard terrain and deep snow, and the 6-wheel version is at its best on hard and flat terrain.
DURABLE AND LONG LASTING STRUCTURE
The durable and long-lasting structure of the PONSSE Elephant forwarder is designed with state of the art materials, such as stronger steel structures and larger diameter pins used, for example, in the crane and slewing cylinder. The PONSSE Elephant has been designed to last.
